I am not amused by the irony

This is a company that supplies electronic assemblies to the company that laid me off (take note of the name)...



this label can be found on the side of the same box...



this is a big part of why it is so difficult to find a decent job these days.

Sometimes I feel if it is not truly made in the U.S.A. it should not have American in the name.

It is very difficult to find/buy things 100% American, not even the new Camaro.

I agree. Irony not amusing. Jobs going out of the country and overseas is not funny stuff either.
